Napolitano Blames Entry Of 9/11 Hijackers On Canada !?!

Obama's new diplomacy...suck up to our enemies and alienate our friends for no good reason.

The fireworks started when Chief of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano was pressed by reporters about statements she made to the effect that there should be equal treatment for the Mexican and Canadian borders. And never mind the flood of illegal immigrants and the major drug war now taking place on our southern border:

"Yes, Canada is not Mexico, it doesn't have a drug war going on, it didn't have 6,000 homicides that were drug-related last year," she said.

"Nonetheless, to the extent that terrorists have come into our country or suspected or known terrorists have entered our country across a border, it's been across the Canadian border. There are real issues there."

When asked if she was referring to the 9-11 terrorists, Napolitano added: "Not just those but others as well.".

The only small problem with that is that it's simply untrue, as the 9/11 Commission found out. And even if it were, the last time I checked, it was US border guards who are responsible for the US side of the border, not the Canadians.

Is this woman too stupid to know that, or to understand the difference between legal and illegal immigration? Apparently not. And to think, the Left called George W. Bush an embarrassment!

Needless to say, our friends in Canada are pretty ticked off at this, and rightfully so. They're wondering how she got her job.

Simple, really. President Obama isn't really concerned with the idea of national security all that much, and also doesn't know much about it. He likes the idea of an amnesty for illegal aliens, but knows that it wouldn't play well politically in the US, so he picked a reliable and not too bright Democrat with a track record of being very soft on illegal aliens to head the DHS and simply maintain the status quo.

And next year, with the US census under the personal control of Rahm Emanuel rather than the US Department of Commerce to count heads and ACORN on the loose to register these new bogus 'voters', he figures he'll be in a position to get what he wants anyway through the back door without the political cost of having to ram an amnesty through Congress.

For what it's worth, my apologies to our Canadian allies. Every so often, our electorate goes insane.

I'm glad you have the grace to apologize. The last I heard your president still hadn't.

I mean, he's apologizing to everybody else, why not us?

Where do they get such crazy people? I mean do they randomly pick out citizen and put them in important functions like hers? That's just wrong. I don't understand how somebody can be so ignorant. It's sad that people like her add to the stupid stereotype the US has. I feel sorry for your country sometimes.

Take care, Elli

Hi Carlo,Elli...yeah, it's embarrassing.

As to how and why this cretin got her job, I think the answer I cam e up with is in the third paragraph from the bottom.

The US is going to learn some very hard lessons at th ehands of the minions of the Obama Administration. I only hope that our next congressionalk elections in 2010 mitigate some of the damage.
